From Teaching to Leading the Learning: A Transformational Perspective
Date: Friday, 07 May 2021
Time: 13:35 - 14:15
Presenter: Steven Happel
In this presentation, Steven weaves a personal and professional story that relates a shifting understanding of education and learning both for himself and the institution he works for – VUS. The story starts with a humble K-12 experience, moving on to university and then the ELT industry in Vietnam. Along the way, Steven touches on models of learning and an institution wrestling with traditional conceptions of education common to Vietnam. Steven ties this into a discussion of leadership, arguing for a more distributed, bottom-up model that sees teachers not just as leaders, but learners.
